Quoting MunchkinWrangler:" I think it's disgusting. I dont think it's "wrong" but it's disgusting. Bloody water that your kids are ... [snip!] ... own juices. Some people pee and smurf while they push their baby out and you want your kids playing in it? Blahhhh yucky yucky."
I don't think I would want my kids to see me in labour let alone be right there next to me.
The fluids don't really gross me out. It's not a big deal, we were all swimming in it before we came out of our mothers. Also, pee is sterile. I bathe with my kids and I know they pee in the bath. It's whatever.
That literally made me sick. I guess to each their own. My twins were in the room while i labored behind a curtain of course. They are boys and 13. I doubt they will have kids for awhile because my son ran out of the room because it scared him. I couldn't imagine my guys sitting in a pool of blood with me!!
